Lightning Strike at Airshow

I hope Richard & Kate & everyone at the Vulcan Village are ok after I read about this inccident below. :D  :D
Lucky Lad but all the 13's makes you think or was it hyped ;)  ;)

Friday the 13th is often thought of as an unlucky day - and it certainly lived up to its reputation for one youngster. Skip related content
 Friday 13 unlucky for lightning boy At precisely 13:13, a boy aged 13 was seen by the St John Ambulance team at Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival in Suffolk after he was struck by lightning, a spokesman said.

The boy suffered a minor burn and was taken to James Paget Hospital, where he is expected to make a full recovery.

It was pretty close to us in the VH (Vulcan Hamlet). One heck of a crack of thunder but we all survived.
I think the people involved were all OK and just taken to hospital as a precaution.
